Dead in the water for now. Developer needs to come back and deal with 435 different complaints about the project that neighbors had. Alderman did not let it pass

The good news at least is that there was no issue on the height or density (which would be within the limits of the PD of LSE master plan anyway, IIRC), mostly regarding the allotment of green space around the tower, pedestrian access/circulation, and some other nitpicky crap that shouldn't be too difficult for the developers to address. Should only be a minor bump in the road to eventual approval.

That's what I anticipate as well. Like you point out the complaints had little to do with your typical NIMBY whining, so if the next plan comes through and better integrates the community and fixes issues within LSE then I'm all for the few month delay.

Good sign, soil testing
This development still has hope.

^Nothing escapes our network of spies...Its like Birds of Prey peering down on the city for the slightest movement of machine...Good job BVic!

Skyguy_7 Feb 9, 2018 1:36 PM

Good job Bvic!

You know it's a BOOM when they can't even keep construction activity out of the lot dedicated for staging PM trailers and facade mock-up for a supertall next door!

Wouldn't that be building K/L?? (Not building I).

I was going to point this out but you never know maybe they only had 2 machines and decided to do building K/L first.

Obviously something massive will get built here. Reilly can’t stop it. He’s not powerful enough to stop the tsunami that is the Chicago highrise construction industrial complex

KWillChicago Feb 9, 2018 5:55 PM

Very good news. Now we just need a legit new render since the last one got tossed out.

I thought the site/landscaping plan got tossed, not the tower.

From my understanding, he really cant stop it anyway. The zoning on the site allows for a building of that height, and its within the total # of units allowed under the PD for LSE.

Reilly's letter that 'killed' the first iteration of the tower was over pedestrian access and landscaping. He didn't even attempt talking about anything else, because he knows he can't do anything about it.

Not worried one bit about Site I, or the rest of LSE. Its been ongoing for 15 years, and has already survived one housing market crash. If the next housing crash is to come soon, they will simply wait it out.



Edit: typo

There is not much better real estate in all the city....so yeah...its all happening eventually.

This is correct.

Steely Dan May 16, 2018 2:28 PM

bumpity-bump so people can easily reference this project for 400 N LSD.

If Amazon were to choose Chi all these projects would be tripping over each other to get approved!

^ I wouldn't worry too much about the approval process. The real ticking time bomb is the maturity of this very long lasting bull market, and how many of these proposals can secure financing and begin construction before the housing market implodes in the next year or two, and which will have to wait until after.
